PicoSure – The first and leading choice for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalisation treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigment like freckles, sunspots and discoloration.
PicoSure laser treatment is available at Ainslie Family Practice in Canberra.
The first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers, PicoSure doesn’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.
Instead, PicoSure engineers used cutting edge physics and medical science to help our practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.
PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signalling. In other words, the body’s natural communication processes which is one of the most exciting medical discoveries in recent history.
PicoSure skin laser treatments
Laser treatments conducted by our registered nurse for:

How it works
The laser energy targets the ink of the unwanted tattoo, breaking it down into smaller particles. The body’s natural processes then eliminate the tiny particles. This results in faster clearance with fewer treatments than traditional lasers. Watch how PicoSure works.
How do I know if PicoSure is the right tattoo removal laser for me?
As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure is able to treat all colours of tattoo ink on patients of all skin-types, so it’s very likely that PicoSure could work for you! Moreover, PicoSure has shown fewer treatments to remove tattoos.
How do I know if PicoSure is the right skin revitalisation treatment for me?
PicoSure is the most versatile short-pulse laser in the world, allowing it to treat a wide variety of pigment conditions as well as acne scars and wrinkles. While other aesthetic products and lasers can treat similar conditions, PicoSure is the only way to achieve great results without the pain, redness and downtime.
What does the procedure feel like?
Most people experience very little discomfort and describe skin revitalisation treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band. Because tattoo removal treatments use more energy, patients may experience more discomfort. However, our practitioner can offer numbing cream or other aids to minimise discomfort.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure time depends on the size of the treatment area. However, 10 minutes is common for average areas.
How much does PicoSure cost?
The cost will depend on the number of treatments necessary. Please contact us for a quote and a personalised plan.
How many treatments are necessary?
- The number of PicoSure treatments for unwanted pigmentation will vary. It depends on the condition being treated, and how each individual responds.
- For tattoo removal, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved. But, 4-10 treatments is common for modern tattoos. Our practitioner will be able to evaluate and provide you with a personalised plan.
- The number of skin revitalisation treatments depends on the clinical condition being addressed. But, 2-5 treatments are common. Our practitioner will provide you with a personalised plan.
